"They obviously don’t mean 'live-action," Rebecca Alter says of the news that Netflix is making a live-action Pokémon series. "They most likely mean 'partially CGI animated. Like Detective Pikachu, the adorable 2019 film that was actually shot on real film. Just come out and say what you mean. If this series were really live-action, they’d be dressing up dog actors as all the different Pokémon."
